LAST CHANCE FOR 2016 H-1Bs

The H-1B cap requires that all H-1B petitions are received at the USCIS’ California Service Center or Vermont Service Center by Thursday April 7, 2015.  Below are some key points to keep in mind about this year’s H-1B cap:

-The USCIS makes no accommodation for delays caused by couriers.  Accordingly, MU Law will file the vast majority of its H-1B petitions on March 31 for delivery by April 1, which is the first day that H-1B petitions are accepted.

-Premium Processing Service (PPS) may not start until May 11, 2016, although the USCIS could start PPS earlier, depending on the volume of petitions that are received.  
-Last year it was until June before most H-1B lottery winners and losers found out about the outcome of their lottery selection.
